Subject: HB 388 - More Transit = Less Pollution
Date: Wed Feb 26 15:45:23 MST 2014
Dear State Representative Sanpei,
We appreciate your efforts to clean up Utah’s air. We know air quality is one of the top issues you face in the current legislative session, and most of the solutions are difficult, expensive and complicated.
One direct, simple – and very substantive – action you can take this session is to support expanding and increasing the convenience and frequency of public transit that will take cars off roads and significantly improve our air quality. This is a step forward endorsed by the Governor’s Clean Air Action Team.
A “Quarter for Clean Air” – Rep. Johnny Anderson’s HB388, lifts the cap on local-option sales tax funding by one quarter of one percent. This would enable counties to ask voters if they would like to expand public transit and would be a significant action taken by you to clean our air.
We urge you to support HB 388 out of committee with a favorable recommendation.
Sincerely, Jaren Stanton UTA 1016 University Village Salt Lake City, UT 84108
